I seriously love the design of this book. Those old graphics will always hold a sacred place in my heart. When looking at these samples I'm immediately taken back to a much simpler time in gaming, and it makes me happy.
If that wasn't enough to get your heart pumping then get this, there will be a Vinyl EP Edition in which they are producing a numbered, heavyweight 12” record including the songs "Goalscoringsuperstarhero" from Sensible Soccer and "War" and "Narcissus (The Hill Theme)" from Cannon Fodder. These are the original, studio-quality recordings, before the songs were crunched to fit onto the Amiga. The record will be expertly manufactured by The Vinyl Factory in London, and will not be reissued in the future. Sounds like an amazing addition to any record collection.

Read-Only Memory is his attempt to bring his two favorite things together: games and design. Lastly, I leave you with a quirky animated commercial for the project. I can't stress how much I love this style, especially for animation.
